At the Main Library
First floor (Children’s Services Area)
- A social narrative for visiting the library (pdf), also available at the Children’s Services desk.
- Noise-canceling headphones, wiggle seats, fidget toys, DIY schedules, pinwheels, sunglasses, weighted lap blankets, and more.
- An Ubi-Duo, a bluetooth-enabled two-way communications system originally created by and for d/Deaf people, that is useful in a variety of situations. For in-the-library use only, patrons can link keyboards to type to another person and you both see each other’s words on your screen.
- Two iPads only loaded with seven augmentative/alternative communication apps. These apps are for people who have difficulty expressing themselves with vocal speech. They can use pre-loaded buttons and on-screen keyboards to communicate. Families need to try a wide variety of apps to find the one that works best for someone, and this will assist them in making this important choice.
- Braille books, ones that have been published in Braille, and ones with Braille translations added.
- Braille readers to translate ebooks and web pages into braille.
- Scanner pens to scan text, hear the words read aloud, and look up any words you don’t know.
- Adapted Boardmaker books, offering picture symbols as a way for children to learn and recognize words in a visual, pictorial way.
